Pitch Report and Conditions
The 44rth Match of Big Bash League 2020-21 is going to be held at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne. We had observed in the previous matches played here that the pitch here at this venue is good for batting. The track is slower than the others we have seen and helps the spinners quite a bit. We are hoping that the surface is bound to get slower and be a bit more difficult for batting in this match.
